Israel Signs Deal with PA to Transfer Control of Electrical Infrastructure

(Jerusalem Post) Max Schindler - The Israel Electric Corporation signed a 15-year agreement with the Palestinian Authority on Tuesday to transfer much of the West Bank's power supply to the PA in a step toward granting the Palestinians more autonomy over their affairs. The IEC will construct four high-voltage power plants in Jalama, Nablus, Ramallah and Tarkumiya.

The deal will also see the PA pay off a $280 million debt to the IEC.
